    The proposals, which passed by a 20-18 vote, include raising age restrictions on the purchase of all firearms in the state, banning the purchase and possession of bump stocks, and sets a three-day waiting period to buy any gun, including rifles and shotguns.

    The package also provides $400 million for mental health services, including mobile crisis teams and school safety programs, such as metal detectors, bullet-proof glass and school resource officers.

    Someone compared chiseling away at gun rights to a bug eating a leaf, chewing off around the edges until the leaf is gone.
    Raising the age from 18 to 21 is a pretty big bite imho.

    So in Florida, a young couple that gets married at age 18, has a kid or two before age 21, can't buy a gun to protect themselves from the vermin that prowl our streets?
    More "feel good" legislation that will fix nothing within the schools, but now make young couples vulnerable to home invasions.
    Unbelievable.

    These Liberals are allowing criminals to flood across our borders, but refuse to allow us to protect ourselves from these very same criminals.
    And yes, South Florida is infested with these vermin. It is just as bad there as it is in the border states with Mexico.
